Total immersion in Zambia's most untouched wilderness


One of the earliest protected areas in Africa, Liuwa Plain was first protected in the early 1880s by the king of the Lozi people, King Lewanika. The plains are unspoilt and exclusive with rare game and a rich natural heritage. Here, on this broad grass canvas, the annual floodwaters host a pageant of wild beauty that throbs to the beat of the royal drums.

Despite its luxurious design, King Lewanika Lodge retains its safari authenticity with canvas walls, indoor and outdoor showers, decks overlooking the plains and the use of natural materials. Elements of leather, cotton and canvas complete the design. The villas offer total immersion in the vast landscape, allowing travelers to experience nature’s masterpiece in a meaningful way. With award-winning guides and intimate safari excursions, we bring unrivalled access and absolute exclusivity to the region. Experience the magic of Liuwa Plain, which is home to Africa’s second biggest wildebeest migration, magnificent birdlife, a growing cheetah population and the famed Lady Liuwa lion pride.
